Ninety percent of consumers said they expect the customer experience to be consistent across channels and devices used to interact with brands this holiday shopping season, according to a new global study of more than 3,000 consumers by SDL. This is a growing expectation from shoppers, representing a 17 percent increase from what consumers reported last year.
Considering that half of holiday shoppers use their mobile devices to research possible gifts before purchasing them in-store and 6 in 10 holiday shoppers do at least some showrooming – going to stores to evaluate products but then purchasing online – brands should make it a priority that the customer experience is consistent across channels and devices, something many consumers have reported frustrations with.
Learning Light, the UK-based independent e-learning industry market analyst, has produced its own thorough analysis of learning management systems (LMSs) identifying its top performers.
Learning Light Director, David Patterson, said: “We’re aware that other organizations – notably Craig Weiss’ E-Learning 24/7 - publish lists of the top LMSs but our detailed analysis relates specifically to these LMS’s appropriateness for use by corporate training organizations and training departments in the UK. We’ve carried out this research in the light of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS)’s statement that, from September 2014, Individual Learner Records for funded further education courses must show a minimum of ten per cent of individuals’ learning via materials delivered online.
“This is going to increase demand for LMSs in the UK – and, at present, there are some 600 LMSs from which to choose. We’ve based our analysis on the cost of ownership; features and functionalities; development pathway and future-proofing from a training industry perspective.”

You’ve probably heard of the Internet of Things (IoT) and how it’s set to completely transform the world. Some may view this as an exaggerated take, but there’s little question that companies across the globe are taking an intense interest in it. The central concept of the IoT features tiny sensors and other machines that are all connected to the internet, allowing them to communicate with people as well as each other. Some experts are predicting that by the year 2020, there could be as many as 20 to 30 million items that are part of the Internet of Things. While there is a lot of hype surrounding the IoT, what’s often lost in the discussion is how the individual will contribute to and be affected by it. In fact, as more focus is placed on people, it’s becoming clear that wearable technology will play a big role in driving the Internet of Things, turning the whole idea into the Internet of You.

Businesses of all sizes have adopted mobile CRM for several important reasons, one of the most important being further promoting a mobile workforce. Many employees find themselves away from the office, which would normally lead to being disconnected from accessing important data, particularly for sales representatives.
Moxie Software recently unveiled a new mobile chat solution and their press relations folks have been in full gear briefing tech blogs on the benefits of the new software. That's alright because besides the marketing aspects they're also throwing some interesting information our way. A new study commissioned by the Moxie reveals 62% of survey participants expect live chat to be available on mobile devices, and 82% would use it. There are a lot of interesting stats in the study that impact the role live chat may have in the customer experience and surprisingly the numbers reveal chat may have more influence on sales than social media does.
We've received a copy of the study and once I've dissected the numbers better I'll post my thoughts and comments on this blog. Until then, here's one interesting part of the study, of those surveyed more men shop online than women. I'm not sure if this is true for my household, but where my wife is willing to shop online and offline I have to admit I prefer the online shopping experience over brick and mortar.
